by Jay Rydberg
Neutersol, is a product developed to chemically sterilize male dogs. This method of sterilization is also called "zinc neutering".
FDA has approved the first product for chemical sterilization of 3 to 10 month old male puppies. The drug, Neutersol Injectable Solution (zinc gluconate neutralized by arginine), provides an alternative to surgical castration and may prove to be a valuable aid in efforts to control burgeoning dog populations.
